Christmas Peace

Peace on earth.

That’s the Christmas message.

Peace on earth.

Jesus was born on this earth to bring peace.

Everlasting peace.

Forever.

Christmas is a time when the whole world takes a breath.

Slows down.

Pauses.

Peace on earth.

Previous wars have stories of cease fires a bit on Christmas Day.

Peace.

Families come together, remembering the reason for the season.

Peace.

Gifts are exchanged in good will towards men.

Peace.

Is there peace in your world this Christmas?

How peaceful are you?

What is your focus?

If your world is not a replication of Norman Rockwell, oh well.

Don’t let that steal your peace.

If your family relationships are not what they should be, oh well.

Don’t let that steal your peace.

If your job, finances, or location are not what they should be, oh well.

Don’t let that steal your peace.

If you’re unhappy with yourself, unmet goals furthering the decline of your health, oh well.

Don’t let that steal your peace.

Christmas time has developed into the most stressful time of the year instead of the most wonderful time of the year.

Because there is no peace when you focus only on providing the perfect Christmas.

Enjoy not finding that amazing gift.

Find humor in your un-sprinkled cookies.

Because I can guarantee you this:  the stable where Jesus was born smelled a whole lot worse then those burned cookies in your oven.

Peace on earth.

Focus on Him.

The rest is just icing on the cake.

Or cookies as it is in my case.  🙂
